Our Very First Impact Report

Our Impact

Our first Impact Report – understanding our how . . .

In 2022 Mothers’ Milk Bank Northeast provided approximately 1.5 million feedings for medically fragile infants. That’s a lot of precious babies receiving a lot of precious donor milk. For us, our work is successful if babies benefit from the safe, pasteurized, human milk we provide.

That’s why we spent several weeks reviewing the last year and exploring exactly how we (and yes, that includes you – after all, we couldn’t do it without your support) made a difference. This involved carefully analyzing data as well as gathering a variety of stories and feedback to help us better understand the impact we are making. 

This is our collective impact, this is our why . . .

The result is the milk bank’s first ever Impact Report – a brief document summarizing our work. We are proud to share this report here with every single one of you who made this incredible work possible.

Huge thanks to our amazing milk donors, our financial supporters, our many dedicated volunteers, and our families who share their stories and teach us what’s most important every day. This is our collective impact – this is why we come together and work so hard.

A record breaking year . . .

In 2022 we collectively:

  • Received milk donations from a record breaking 970 milk donors
  • Kept the milk flowing to over 100 hospitals (primarily NICUs) who depend on us to care for their most vulnerable patients.
  • Distributed approximately 26,000 much needed feedings through our charitable GIFT program
  • Honored 33 lives through our bereaved donors program

And that’s not all.
